How Harmful Are Termites Inside Bellevue Homes?
When we talk about termites harming us, we're not talking about bites or stings. You have nothing to fear from termites, as they are not known to bite people. But they do take bites out of the wood inside homes and businesses, one bite at a time, slowly nibbling away at support structures and causing cascading damage, over time, which eventually will take a bite out of our wallets.
But a termite is only about ¼ to ½ an inch in length, how much damage can it really do?
That's right. Termites are small. An individual termite isn't much of a threat to our property. The problem is that your property isn't going to be attacked by an individual subterranean termite working on its own. There can be over a million individual termites in a termite colony and your property can be attacked by more than one colony at a time. Together, they can do a lot of damage, especially in Tennessee where temperature and humidity levels are ideal.
What does all that damage cost Tennessee property owners?
According to the National Pest Management Association (NPMA), subterranean termites cost U.S. property owners over $5 billion annually, and states with a warmer climate, like Tennessee, pay out more than states that stay colder throughout the year. That's why termites in Tennessee should never be ignored. And yet, we often do just that. Out of sight out of mind, right? But don't let this be the case for you.
Termites prefer to stay out of sight. In fact, they're really good at it. That is one of the biggest reasons subterranean termites are so harmful. But, when you have a professional install the Sentricon® System with Always Active™, you don't have to worry about those wood-destroying pests eluding detection. Sentricon® with Always Active™ takes the guesswork out of termite detection and elimination. It's like investing in a termite security system for your property.
It is extremely difficult to detect subterranean termites, even for experienced professionals. It requires getting into every nook and cranny around a home and squeezing into dirty crawl spaces under a home. If there is a block foundation, each and every concrete pier must be meticulously checked. Mistakes can happen. That is one big reason why many pest control experts have turned to the award-winning Sentricon® System with Always Active™.
Sentricon® with Always Active™ uses bait stations which takes the guesswork out of termite detection. When worker termites come to attack a home, they find the bait, every time, because it is in their nature to continually explore for food. When they do, it is easy for pest control technicians to see it. More than this, Sentricon® with Always Active™ begins to immediately use worker termites against the colony that sent them. And, in most cases, eliminate the colony without any intervention from the technician.
In 8 out of 10 homes that we have installed Sentricon® with Always Active™ as a preventative measure, we caught termites and eliminated colonies in the first year. No Tennessee home should be without termite protection.
If you're ready to get your termite protection in place for your Bellevue home or business, give us a call today to learn more about our termite control options.
How Mice Get Into Bellevue, TN Homes
The two mice we see most in our Middle Tennessee service area are the house mouse and the deer mouse. A house mouse is 5 ½ to 7 inches long from head to tail, and grey or brown in color with a light tan underside. A deer mouse is around 6 inches long from head to tail with grayish-brown fur above and white fur below.
It is important to tell these two mice apart because deer mice are primarily responsible for transmitting the Hantavirus to humans, which is a growing threat in the United States. But both of these mice are vectors for human pathogens, harmful bacteria, and parasites. Here are some ways they may try to get into your Middle Tennessee property.
Gaps: If you have gaps around pipes and electrical conduit, or cracks in foundation walls, mice will exploit these holes. It doesn't take much of a hole for a mouse to gain entry. If it finds a hole that is slightly larger than the size of its skull, it can work its way in.
Wall and Door Frames: Mice have strong incisors which they use to chew through wood. They can chew through a screen and work their way through the frame of a window. Once inside a wall void, there are many ways they may emerge into common areas.
Under Your Garage Door: If your garage door doesn't have a complete seal, especially near the corners, mice can work their way in. It is important to make sure your door makes a good seal and that it is kept closed.
Air Vents: Mice can jump to gain entrance to air vents. It is important to keep vents covered with some form of screen material.
Rooflines and Chimney: If a mouse can get up to your roof, they can gain entry through your roofline or chimney. They will do this by using tree branches as a bridge or by climbing up downspouts. Deer mice are especially good at doing this.
If you haven't had mice get in yet, you can find some great tips for general exclusion here and some tips here for excluding mice before they get onto your property in the fall.
As always, All-American Pest Control is available to assist you with any pest control matter you're dealing with. For one-time or ongoing rodent control, start with a free evaluation for your home or business.
Keeping Fire Ants Off the Lawn in Bellevue
There are many things homeowners love to have on their Bellevue property. Fire ant colonies are not one of them. While other types of ants can be a mere nuisance, these ants can be downright dangerous.
Not only do they produce itchy, red welts when they bite and sting but, for some, they can be even more harmful. It is important to understand the dangers these tiny ants pose, how you can minimize the threat, or eliminate them from your property completely.
Dangers Fire Ants Pose
Bites and stings: Fire ants bite to get a grip on the skin, then deliver a painful sting which causes a burning sensation. One sting is generally not dangerous but several stings can be harmful. Studies have shown that these unassuming ants can take down a small animal with their alkaloid venom. This makes them a concern for the elderly, the infirm, infants, and others who are unable to get away from accumulating stings.
Allergic reactions: Some people are allergic to the venom of fire ants. For these individuals, even one fire ant sting can lead to a life-threatening reaction.
Food contamination. Like most ants, these ants can contaminate foods if they bring bacteria from garbage sites, drains, etc. into your food preparation and storage areas.
Like so many other yard and household pests, fire ants love the heat. For this reason, Tennessee is a prime breeding spot for these little stingers. Fire ants are able to establish themselves and grow their populations very quickly here.
Fire Ant Prevention
There are many suggestions on the internet for how to keep fire ants from encroaching upon a yard but the truth is these ants aren't deterred by much and, not only are DIY treatments generally ineffective, they can actually make your problem worse. It is best to invest in professional treatments. At All-American Pest Control, we provide stinging & biting insect yard treatments to deal with fire ant problems.
